Watch The 2021 Audi RS6 Avant Accelerate Like A Supercar

As advertised, the super wagon does the sprint in 3.6 seconds.

Audi Sport has been putting a lot of effort lately into diversifying its SUV portfolio, but that doesn't mean its core models have been neglected. Take for the new RS6 Avant, which offers the complete package by combining the practicality of a wagon with the performance of a supercar and the finesse Audis are known for. It also has heaps of technological goodies and sinfully gorgeous styling to create Ingolstadt's ideal all-in-one car.

The best thing about the new RS6? It's finally coming to the United States. This Tango Red example was shot by Motor1.com friend Auditography recently in Malibu, California where the supercar disguised as a family wagon was also put to the test by accelerating to 62 mph (100 km/h) with two people onboard. As advertised by Audi, it needed 3.6 seconds to complete the task with the launch control system activated. However, we're being told a separate test with an onboard Vbox resulted in a sprint time of just 3.48 seconds in a large car that weighs 4,575 pounds (2,075 kilograms) without a driver.

Then there's the styling, which represents a significant departure from the regular A6 Avant. In fact, Audi exterior designer Andreas Joachim Koglin has told us the RS6 borrows only three body parts from the standard wagon: front doors, roof, and the tailgate. Everything else has been changed, including the front fascia adapted from the RS7 Sportback. Those chunky oval exhausts are the biggest tips ever fitted to an RS model and deliver an epic sound as the twin-turbo V8 flexes its muscles.

Having this whole package comes at a steep price, though. Audi hasn't announced yet how much it will cost in the United States, but the base price in Germany is going to be an eye-watering €117,500 or more than double the price of a standard A6 Avant (€50,000). The fourth-generation RS6 is also a lot more expensive than the €79,000 S6 Avant TDI, but that's the price to pay for having a car that ticks just about all the right boxes.
